Goto ACP>>General>>Board Configuration>>Board Settings to change it.
If u want to completely remove it.
Open:styles/redsilver/template/overall_header.html
Find and Delete:

Code: Select all

				<h1>{SITENAME}</h1>
				<p>{SITE_DESCRIPTION}</p>
:D

Find:

Code: Select all

				<a href="{U_INDEX}" title="{L_INDEX}" id="logo">{SITE_LOGO_IMG}</a>
Replace with:

Code: Select all

				<a href="http://yoursiteom title="Yoursitename" id="logo">{SITE_LOGO_IMG}</a>
You are done :D

Open the overall_header.html template file and search for {U_INDEX}. Replace that with http://www.torquespin.com/ and it should link back to the site index.

I saw this line on your site, and it is what you need:

Code: Select all

<a href="./index.php"><img style="margin: -4px 40px -4px -4px;" src="./styles/RedSilver/imageset/site_logo.gif" alt="Site Logo" /></a>
All you need to do is change this:

Code: Select all

<a href="./index.php">
To this:

Code: Select all

<a href="http://www.torquespin.com/">
That should do it, unless, of course, that is what you have already tried, in which case you could try to define a new template variable link. I think they are stored in includes/functions.php
